The List: Top 10 Worst Superhero Movies

Well, here we are. Our last list was the Best Superhero Movies, so now we dive to the other end of the scale. And I have to say this, I'm very surprised at some of the nominations oyu guys made/ didn't make. We didn't see nominations for either of the original Fantastic Four movies (the ones with Jessica Alba) or either of Nicholas Cage's Ghost Rider movies (which probably wouldn't have made the list but I'm surprised nobody even nominated them) nor Blade Trinity (which had Ryan Reynolds in it and had such a troubled production that the lead actor had a body double do all of the shots where his face wasn't explictly required). But instead we got the 2004 Spider-Man movie (by which we're assuming Spider-Man 2, which was awesome) and Captain Marvel (which will not be making the list, sorry, I cannot justify it being on the list when none of the aforementioned films weren't even nominated, nor can I justify it being any higher than any number of movies that are on the list) were nominated. But anyway, admin out of the way, let's see what did make the list shall we:

Poll Position: The Worst Superhero Movie Of All Time

So, as we've just found out what the community believes are the top 10 best superhero movies of all time, why not do the opposite. As with the poll for the best movies, I've started us out with 10 movies that most people will agree are to some extent pretty terrible, but you can add your own choices to the list (preferably with the year they came out, so we don't have any confusion between movies with the same or simular names, i.e. Fantastic Four) one per day. We are including any film that has superheros as a main theme and had a theatrical release, both live-action and animated. So we wouldn't accept the 1992 Fantastic Four film because that went unreleased and can only be viewed on VHS bootlegs or on the internet, but we would accept Hancock, because it was about superheroes and wasn't great. You can vote for as many choices as you want once per day and the poll is open until the 6th of July (so a week on Friday).
